Hi Guys .... I know there have been threads about this before but as I have only had my A4 cab for the last month, I thought I would share my results and see how this compares. My car is a 54 plate cab 2.5v6 TDi with multitronic gearbox, and 44k on it.
Recently had a remap, and therefore have been checking fuel economy. I drive around 1800-2000 miles/month, mostly dual carriageway/motorways, and generally have the cruise control on around 70-75mph indicated. As an aside, I ALWAYS use Shell fuel, mostly normal diesel, but occasionally throw a tank of V-Power into it.
Have to say so far, that i am impressed given that it is a big heavy car. My previous car was a Volvo S60 D5 with Auto gears, and that was also very good, same journeys I was getting probably mid 40'smpg.
Anyway, the DIS for this last tank gave me a figure of 41.9mpg. Having brimmed the tank, I have done 650 miles having put in 70 litres of fuel which equates to 15.38 Imp.Gallons, which inturn meant a return of 42.26 mpg. Therefore, quite surprisingly the DIS was very accurate, and seeing as the mileage also included some town driving, as mentioned I am very pleased with the result.
please feel free to comment
